NPCNYS Annual Conference
The highlight of the Neighborhood Preservation Coalition Annual Conference is the presentation of the Luis Arce Success Award and the Herman D. Farrell, Jr. Policy Leader Award.
These coveted awards are presented at the can’t miss cocktail reception on Monday evening.
Luis Arce Success Award
The Luis Arce Success Award honors the memory of Luis Arce, who was a tireless advocate for the rights of low-income families. His dedication to those less fortunate in his neighborhood and the meaningful work he accomplished throughout his short lifetime is a statement of Luis’ courage, conviction and passion for social justice.
In remembering Luis’ compassion, energy, zeal, and dedication, we created the Luis Arce Success Award to celebrate the contributions of neighborhood activists in the area of affordable housing and community development.
Herman D. Farrell, Jr. Policy Leader Award
The Herman D. Farrell, Jr. Policy Leader Award honors a dedicated and highly-respected public servant who served as the New York State Assembly representative for District 71 until 2017.
For over 40 years, Assemblyman Farrell was a tireless advocate for affordable housing, education and the environment, and was the original author of the Neighborhood Preservation Company legislation.
This award honors his spirit and his memory, and will be presented to a state or local government official who has worked to create and/or preserve affordable housing and helped spur neighborhood revitalization.
